Spring into Nutrition!


Spring into the Season with BUCK! As our BUCK-a-Pound fundraiser is ongoing this spring, we decided to focus our attention on some ways you can get yourself healthy and active this season. There are a lot of messages about what you should and should not eat, so we are here to simplify nutrition and help you make healthy decisions! Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate recommends eating mostly vegetables, fruit, whole grains, healthy fats, and healthy proteins. They also suggest drinking water instead of sugary beverages, and reducing your sodium and alcohol intake.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics tips for eating right for a healthy weight include: setting a plan for lifelong health, planning your meals ahead of time, and balancing your plate with a variety of foods. Half your plate should be fruits and vegetables, one fourth should be protein like lean meat, beans, fish or poultry, and one fourth should be grains. You can complete your plate with fat-free or low-fat milk, cheese, or yogurt. If you are looking for a personalized eating plan, the MyPlate Plan will give you the correct amounts of each food group you need daily for your height, weight, and physical activity level. https://www.myplate.gov/myplate-plan
